On tap at the brewery. Aroma of malts and some hops...not really much though. Appearance is a light tan with off white head. Taste is very understated and fairly bland. Not much going on with this, although it is still a decent beer, it is my least favorite from RR. 50belair (3679) - Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2011
On tap at RR. Hey, it’s true to the style. British malt and bread flavors aren’t really my thing. Hard to get excited about this after drinking so many great RR sours..... swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 17, 2011
draft at Russian River. honey caramel pour. British maltiness, buttery caramel maltiness, light grain, breadiness. Good for the style AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - FEB 16, 2011
Pours light and bright golden with a thin white head. Both the nose and flavor are light citrus, bready malts and a touch smokey in the finish. Smooth on the palate and HIGHLY drinkable. Nice finish to an evening of RR Sours. JoeTheYounger (1183) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - FEB 14, 2011

Shenandoah Throwdown 2010. Thanks to Ken I think. Pours a hazed honey golden with good white fluffy head. Aroma is earth tea-like hops, floral fresh English hops, light citrus with lemon cracker toast and light malts. Flavor is ginger tea- leafy, cracker toast, light floral and citrus, fresh toast, bread and light cereal malts, some slight fruity esters all around, mineral and hard water finish. Pretty good. tokyogoat (1503) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Pours a pale golden yellow color. Nose is feint with floral hops and cereal grains, taste is thin, light bitterness, light in body, and finishes with a really nice floral hop wash. Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 16, 2010
Tap at toronado SD. Pours clear gold with a small bubbly white head. Nice nose of citrus hops and some cereal grain. Light bitter finish. Ratman197 (15200) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2010
On tap at Russian River poured a clear orange amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of biscuit, earthiness and spicy hops. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a smooth dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, earthiness, spicy hops and light carmel with as smooth dry finish. falschfreiheit (23) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - NOV 13, 2010
Rating from growler brought home, but usually get it on tap at the brewpub.I think it changed a little when it want from "Gaffers Bitter" at 5.??% to "Gaffers" at 4.68, and I understand it’s planned to come down to 4.5% eventually.
Light clear golden brown. Poured with a nice thick white head that leaves some lacing on the glass as it settles down to an irregular covering. Aroma is bread, floral, pine/resin; good hop presence. Bit of citrus. Slightly bready mouthfeel with a good amount of effervescence. Slight metallic notes.
Overall: well balanced and very drinkable and sessionable. Can happily drink pint after pint of this.
